Porsche: 1997 Porsche 993 911 Carrera Cabriolet with 56,012 Miles
One thing is certain, the fourth generation of the 911 – the 993 – is one of the most desirable editions in the history of this classic vehicle. The natural interplay of concave and convex forms, integrated bumpers, flush-mounted windows, the wide rear end and angled tail-light panel were all new and heart fluttering features for car enthusiasts. Even the new front wings – a flatter design made possible by new polyellipsoid headlights – quickly found widespread approval.
The 993 also underlined its leading position in the sports car world—with a completely redesigned LSA aluminium chassis, combining lightweight construction and stability with highly tuned agility. The result: even better driving dynamics and enhanced suspension comfort over previous models.
The flat-six engine provided another reason why the 993 became so popular among collectors: it was the last 911 power-plant to feature its classic air cooling—with a power output of 282hp.
In the end, staking everything on the 911, Type 993 paid off for Porsche. The chapter of air-cooled engines in this unique model history ended with the fourth generation of this iconic sports car in 1998. The second era then started after 35 years. It was the beginning of a time that would see unparalleled success, for the 911, and for Porsche. Porsche produced a total of 68,881 vehicles of the Type 993 between 1993 and 1998.
This is the 1997 Porsche 993 911 Carrera Cabriolet in Arena Red Metallic. This model sports the same famous Air Cooled SOHC 3.6 L H6 that puts 272hp and 243 lb-ft of torque to the ground using a rear engine/rear wheel drive configuration and has 55,973 original miles on the odometer. This car uses the less known but still very performance oriented 4-speed Tiptronic Automatic transmission and has a curb-weight of 3,120lbs. Utilizing all the new aerodynamic design and tuning, the 1997 Porsche 993 911 Carerra can reach a top speed of 165mph and go from 0-60mph in 6.4 seconds.
This is a piece of history that will continue to put a smile on its owners face, it is and forever will be one of the greatest generations of Porsche racing heritage, a joy to see, drive and own.
